Prescription for Change
The 1997-1998 Yearbook illustrates the emergence of many notice-
able changes at the Medical College of Virginia (MCV) Campus. The
one which appears to be of greatest immediate impact to students is
the mandated name change of our campus to reflect the unification of
the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and the Medical Col-
lege of Virginia. The legacy of excellence in healthcare professional
education at the MCV campus is a feature that students are proud to
uphold. As such, the letters known as MCV mean a great deal and it
has been a difficult transition for students. It is also clear that VCU
is a growing institution with a dynamic present and future. Thus,
while the academic and medical campuses may be miles apart geo-
graphically, the campuses have had a singular purpose, since 1968, in
offering students educational experiences designed to prepare them
for the real world. This mandated name change is reflected on the
cover of the yearbook, as for the flrst time in its history, the yearbook
cover bears the name; Virginia Commonwealth University.
The Skull & Bones Restaurant closed its doors after serving as a
haven for students to meet, discuss their experiences at MCV and
forge lifelong friendships. The restaurant offered inexpensive, soul-
satisfying fare to students, faculty, hospital staff, patients and their
families. Famous for platters piled high with crispy onion rings and
tangy homemade limeade.. .the Skull & Bones will be missed by all!
The MCV Hospitals underwent a change in its management struc-
ture. A business venture designed to ensure that MCVH can continue
to meet the challenges of healthcare reform, maintain its reputation
of excellence in the medical marketplace and continue to provide out-
standing educational opportunities to healthcare students from
across the nation and around the world.
We have faced many challenges and changes in ourselves and in
our lives as we have progressed towards our goals as healthcare pro-
fessionals. We will continue to do so as we leave VCUIMCV and enter
into the workforce. But, we must remember that whatever challenges
we may face; whatever name our school carries; whatever changes
that may affect us; we must remember who we are and what we repre-
sent. It is not the ^'powers that be'' that direct our lives, we do. We
must each write our own "Prescription for Change" and strive to make
a difference and improve the world around us.

Dear Students and Soon-to-be-Graduates,
Realizing your goal of becoming a nurse or completing the program for a new academic
credential in your chosen profession is truly an exciting time!
The 1990's have been chaotic years for health care. In light of the economic, social and
political forces that have become more visible in shaping the nature of the system, the
future seems unpredictable. As you view these changes, however, you should feel optimis-
tic about your place within whatever structure emerges. It is clear that now, as never
before, nurses and nursing are being viewed as knowledge workers. No longer are we
viewed as doers who happen to think, but rather as thinkers who happen to do.
You are among the best educated nurses in a system which now understands the impor-
tance of an educated workforce. The ever-changing world awaits you ~ step forward and
claim your rightful place as invaluable members of the health care team..

The instructors at the VCU/MCV School of Nursing are among the finest in the country.
Many of the faculty are involved in conducting research, publishing, public service and
clinical practice in addition to their teaching responsibilities. By setting the standard for
nursing, in creating a vision of excellence and self-involvement, the faculty serve as
exemplars to the students. Unable to picture all of the faculty here, the students wish to
extend their appreciation to all staff and faculty for their hardwork and dedication.

We would like to thank several people for their
help with this year's yearbook. First, we would
like to thank Tina Kariotakis from the Josten's
Yeartech company. Tina proved to be a valuable
asset and was a great help to us in preparing this
Secondly, and most importantly, we would like to
thank Mr James Miller, our yearbook adviser and
Student Activities Director He and his staff bent
over backwards to make sure we had everything
we needed to complete this yearbook.
Lastly, we would like to thank all the students that
submitted photos. The yearbook would not have
been possible without you!
Thank you all.

The year of 1998 promises to be full of many changes. We graduate. We
move on to our long awaited careers. We begin our roles as healthcare
professionals. We say goodbye, but not farewell, to friends and colleagues
met along the journey. We take with us rich experiences of our education
at the MCV Campus of VCU, and with this, a broadened vision of the future
I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to my husband, Steve. I simply
could not have made it through, not only the daunting task of completing
^--^^ this yearbook, but these last several, difficult, financially-draining, exhaust-
,;^ I ing years without his love and support. I would like to recognize my kids;
~\^^ -"-^ Steven, Chris and Bobbie. They are all great kids and it has been hard for
them not having Mom around all the time. They have always been
supportive and I hope I have made them proud!
I would like to thank Marybeth and Joyce for their help in compiling the
yearbook. Also, a special thanks goes to my friend, Kara McDowell. Kara
was always there to listen to my whining and complaining and was a good
friend to me throughout my years at MCV.

Thanks to my husband, Jeff. We made it!!
Thanks to the Atlanta Road Trip Crew for all of the laughter and photo-
graphs, Aaron, Marybeth, and Susan.
